Recently Held Meetups

On June 4th, the long-awaited second-ever Cardano community event in Kyushu was held at Mika Studios, an event space in Fukuoka city. 13 members of the community were in attendance including Community Manager Andrew Charalambous. The event was conceived when Andrew visited Tokyo for the Blockchain Expo upon which he, along with other community members, decided that it would now be a fantastic time to begin holding regular community events in the Kyushu area given that event restrictions had now eased.

There was a fantastic mix of veteran community members and newcomers who had just discovered Cardano and its ecosystem, creating the perfect opportunity for Andrew to represent the Cardano Foundation and establish another bridge connecting the Foundation to the Japanese community.

Andrew spoke briefly on his role at the Cardano Foundation and his plans to help bolster community growth and support moving forward as well as listening to community members to find strategies to better bolster community efforts in Japan and Asia.

DB, I noticed Eric at IOHK never returned my emails after Consensus in Austin, Texas. Is Cardano or IOHK capable to help with a design for a platform requiring blockchain and AI? I need to build an MVP. Maybe you can suggest someone?
